Yes, both FF3 and 4 have stalled badly for me. I switched to Swiftfox and so far the problem's been solved.

I just grabbed it from here: http://getswiftfox.com/download.htm - the installer works fine.

Thank bob! Anything for a trouble-free life.

BTW who is responsible for reporting FF problems to Mozilla?

It's not happy Demz.

Launches and quits. Maybe it will be ok after a reboot/logoff. Using Epiphany for the time being.

Rebooted PC. I got a long list of crap as though it was still active in the background. Anyway I don't have the time to fix it, so it will just have to stay that way.

Thanks for your time.

Sometimes FF3B5 spends a lot of time fooling with the
urlclassifier.sqlite files, if that's bugging you, go to:

Edit -> Preferences -> Security -> toggle off the two
checkboxes about "Tell me if the site I'm visiting is a suspected attack | forgery" ....

You can tell this is going on because FF3 will get slowish and the disk will be
grinding a bit. If you look in your .mozilla/firefox/xxxxxx.default/ dir
the urlclassifier.sqlite file will be the newest file, and it will be growing and
probably large.

UPDATE:
mozilla bug link for urlclassifier issue (currently listed as resolved )

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=430530

Firefox was locking up and crashing on me this morning. I will give marko's advice a try.

Thanks!

I updated the F9 system yesterday evening and FF worked fine after the upgrade. Was a newer version released during the night ( GMT +2 time )?
